Hello from New England

Hello to the group.

New to the forum, and new to the brand. Our brand new Jayflight 32BHDS with the flat sides is replacing our previous Forest river product "Surveyor 23RS." Prior to the surveyor TT we were running a 1971 Starcraft Starmaster6.

The surveyor had developed floor rot, and I rebuilt the floor from the nose to the galley, which caused me significant education in RV plumbing, electrical, LP, and of course how to marry good joist-type floor to the ultra lite factory slab floor. Let me tell you... You can't BUY that kind of education!

I was drawn to jayco due to the floor and roof construction methods (I prefer joists now over luan and styrofoam.). I also wanted tin and stick walls with the Jayflight, but ended up with the new fiberglass wall option.

I'm also hesitant over this enclosed underbelly... Seems like just more to deal with when the inevitable repair will need to be made.

But overall my wife and I love the bunkhouse and the two kids really love having their own room! I've only camped in it two nights so far, and kept it winterized due to the mountain trip and freezing temps.

Hopefully the winter will be a quick one for us.

Thanks a lot, and so far the community here has been real welcoming. I'm a ten year vet over at rv.net, and that forum clearly has a different vibe.

Welcome to JOF, Craig. I think you will be very happy with your new Jayco. I have had my bunkhouse 5er for 6 years and have had absolutely zero issues with it, except I haven't got to use it as much as I would like to. As far as this forum, I know you will like our vibes much better than that other place.

Welcome to the forum. We recently purchased the same TT. I hope you're as happy with yours as we are with ours.

Hi from Hudson! Yes, we sure did purchase from Forrest Marine. They were super low key, great knowledgeable staff, and we are very happy.

So for now we are trying to get all our chores and projects for the house done this winter so we can get out most weekends next spring, summer and fall.
